Experience the historic park in a unique way that only happens once a year during Heritage Hill Historical Park’s 30th annual Candlelight Walk. On December 12 and 13, 2015, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., more than 1,000 luminarias will light the park’s pathways as strolling carolers and musicians fill the air with music. Children can visit with Santa in the arbor and sit at a school desk while storytellers spin holiday tales in the one-room El Toro Grammar School. Visitors will enjoy historic holiday radio shows as they tour the 1930s Bennett Ranch house and can watch a Spanish guitarist and Flamenco dancer in the 1863 Serrano Adobe. There will also be ongoing entertainment in the 1891 St. George’s Episcopal Mission. Hot chocolate, apple cider, and homemade cookies will be available for purchase.
